UCSB Welcomes the Whole Family for Gaucho Gallop and Kids Festival

Whoever said college was for adults only? UCSB is hosting two fun-filled events designed with kids in mind.

On Saturday, April 25, the Gaucho Gallop at Harder Stadium features a one-mile dash for kids, in addition to the 5K run/walk. A breakfast burrito will be waiting at the finish line, along with ribbons for all. The event is free for ages 10 and under, $15 for ages 11 to 17 and $20/25 for adults. An additional $5 will be charged for day of event registration, with the exception of kids 10 and under, who are still free).

The Gaucho Kids Festival will take place later that day from 10 a.m. to noon at the Recreation Center. There will be a wide array of activities, such as making liquid-nitrogen ice cream, building pinecone bird-feeders and learning new hip-hop moves, and mobile touch tanks filled with live marine life will be brought to the event. It is free for all to attend and a waiver must be signed by a parent or guardian.

The UC Santa Barbara Alumni Association is welcoming the entire community onto campus to celebrate UCSB’s unique environment during the All Gaucho Reunion from April 23-26. It is an opportunity to reconnect and to appreciate the wonder of the campus’s beachside location.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
